Weak subwoofer worth the trouble?

AH, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: The addition of a subwoofer does enhance the sound making it more complete. It awakens the listener to the presence of bass elements in the song, but quickly becomes clear that the bass is insufficient. As others have mentioned, the subwoofer is not adjustable. However, this little subwoofer requires AC power, space, wires and cost, which cannot justify the slight improvement in sound.

Not-so-great bass for price

  • Summary: Bass isn't so great compared to other speakers in the general price range. Also, the bass speaker is on the bottom of the small/very light bass unit and is unprotected and can be very easily damaged if kicked over by kids/pets or restless legs. Maybe try the Insignia NS-PCS41?

Better than expected sound overall but lacks in highs and lows

  • Summary: I got this product as a downgrade from the next step up in speakers from these guys to save space and get less booming bass. Instead I got wayyyyy less bass. There appears to be no happy medium between the two in price-point. It's either too much bass or not enough. Also, the soundscape sounds like the sound is coming from two small tubes.

Best purchase ever!

  • Summary: This was so affordable and I have been listening to my music on these speakers for like 12 hours a day for about 6 months now, and I couldn't be happier! The cute little subwoofer makes this speaker set sound really nice, people area always surprised when I tell them how cheap these speakers were. If anything ever happens to them, I'll buy the exact same set again.

Very pleased with this inexpensive set of speakers.

  • Summary: For the price... very impressive. Small set, big sound. Perfect for a small room. I use them in my 10X10 office and the "Hair Nation" rocks all day! If your looking for top quality big bass so you can thump your Snoop Dog & Lil Wayne then this set is not for you. If you want good clear sound for your laptop or desktop... these are well worth the small investment.

Awesome speakers for the money, not overly loud but would buy again!

  • Summary: Surprisingly good sound for the price! It is not overly loud when turned all the way up so that may be the one downfall but I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a decent set of speakers... I use this set up in my bathroom and it is perfect for my needs and surprisingly has decent bass considering the "subwoofer" is nothing more than a downward facing speaker mounted in a small box.

  • Summary: Love the speakers. A huge upgrade from the ones that came with my computer. The compact design gives me extra space on my desk. Only drawback is the cord going from the speaker to sub is a little short.

  • Summary: I got a pair of these when i moved to my new house in Lake Elsinore in jan. 2010 and they have been nothing but awesome since then. they've taken EVERYTHING ive thrown at them from rap, dubstep, jazz, piano, classical, indy, ANYTHING and they always sound awesome, crisp, and beautiful. they are very accurate no matter how loud the sound is. i dont know how altec lancing put so much quality in a 30 dollar product but they did... and havent blown.
